Cortes | Behold Bohol


Photo by adVANtuRES

Cortes is a town northeast of Tagbilaran City. They had already a form of government before the coming of the Spaniards. Prominent barangays during that time were Malabago and Dayhangan. Malabago was later changed to Pamingwitan because of the way the people caught fish.

It was during the construction of the church that barangays Pamingwitan and Dayhangan were welded together to become a new town and given a new name “Cortes” derived from the Spanish “Cortesimo”, meaning most courteous.
